Bald Head Island’s Maritime Forest

The time has come. You’re finally planning a vacation. It’s been so long since you’ve traveled, you can’t decide where to go. The beach? The mountains? Somewhere exciting? Or somewhere quiet? We can help you decide! Bald Head Island has charm, unmatched scenery, beaches, creeks, and a maritime forest. It’s just the place you need to go to forget about the past year of chaos, relax and recharge.  

Bald Head Island has miles of gorgeous beaches, hiking trails, bike paths, you name it! Walk or ride a golf cart around the island and take in the scenery while the worries fade away. Giant live oaks, red cedar, and laurel oaks make up the landscape of the maritime forest. When a storm hits the island, the forest acts as a buffer, with the wind going up against the forest canopy, protecting the island’s vegetation. 

You can spend your Bald Head Island vacation right by the ocean or nestled away in the maritime forest.  Marsh Onward! is surrounded by beautiful trees and has an expansive screened porch. It sleeps 14 and is just 5 minutes away from the beach. Opportunity Knocks is right by the golf course with incredible views of the 6th fairway. It sleeps 12, it’s pet-friendly, and is close to beach access! Our Tern is a charming cottage near Maritime Way that sleeps 8. It features a small fenced yard in case you bring the pup and is minutes away from South Beach access. For more details on rentals, go here. You can sit on the front porch of your Bald Head Island cottage and read a good book or drink your coffee listening to the birds in trees. When the crew is ready for the day, you head over to the beach! 

2020 was tough on everyone and it’s time to make new summer memories. Make up for last year by spending this summer or fall on Bald Head Island. It has a little of everything so the whole family will be happy with the destination. Book your cozy cottage soon and start packing!
